About Us

The Department of Curriculum and Instruction offers undergraduate and graduate level instruction in curriculum; teaching methodology in specialty areas such as career and technical education, consumer and family sciences education, educational technology, elementary education, literacy and language education, mathematics education, science education, and social studies education; and supervised clinical experiences with students in schools and community settings.

At the advanced graduate degree level, we prepare master teachers, curriculum specialists, teacher educators, educational researchers, directors of training for business and government, and specialists in educational technology.

Each graduate program is a collaborative effort between the faculty and the graduate student; each program is designed to reflect the aspirations of the student, as well as the knowledge and skills necessary to assume leadership roles in school and in universities.
